Simple Fun with Accucut, Dutchpapercraft, and Papertrey

Today I played with some of my dies. I made this box using one of my Accucut dies, and a "Sizzix" mover and shaper die to cut the center out adding the heart window to it. I painted the box a baby pink, darkened the edges a bit with ink, then placed a piece of acetate behind the heart. Then I added the beautiful and delicate heart shaped flourish, which accented the heart shape window perfectly. This is one of the dies I purchased from Dutch Paper Craft. http://dutchpapercrafts.blogspot.com/ I believe they are Marianne Dies or Memory Box. You can contact Darlene ( a.k.a. Evil Temptress) at DutchPaperCraft if you are interested in purchasing them.
 The Card I made using Papertrey Inks "Simply Jane" dies and stamp set, as well as the lovely lacy oval and flourish, again from Dutchpapercrafts. This set of stamps had lovely images as well as beautiful sentiments for many occasions. I cut the man and woman shapes out and glittered them with Recollections red glitter.  Placed them on foam tabs to oval cuts made with my nestabilities.
Lately it seems I am favoring a more simple design. Not a lot of clutter to these, but sweet and elegant. Now to find some foiled chocolates to put in the box. What a sweet "I love you" for someone special.
